    Yeah. It removes the portion of your blood that holds the hormones.
    Why would you "donate" plasma if you can afford AAS and a bodybuilding lifestyle?

    My wife and I donate plasma to help pay for our Mexico trip every year. Thanks for the insight.

    I donate plasma, but I never get paid to do it. I also never knew about the hormone being in the plasma. Thanks for that info Bonaparte.

    Yeah, all steroid hormones are plasma bound. So double RBC donations don't deplete them, but plasma and whole blood donation will. Plasma is obviously the worst in this regard, especially since it has no positive therapeutic effect.
